Devueltos los servidores de Indymedia
13 oct 2004
Un empleado de Rackspace ha declarado: "solo me han dicho que la orden judicial esta siendo cumplida y vuestros servidores de Londres estaran en linea a las 5 GMT. Os pasare cualquier nueva informacion que me sea permitida transmitir."

Se ha verificado que los servidores son los originales, pero todo lo demas sigue sin aclararse: quien los secuestro y por que, bajo que orden judicial? Indymedia no sabe si Rackspace sigue estando obligada a retener la informacion por la orden judicial.

Los discos duros seran tratados como "hacked" (sospechosos) y en consecuencia habran retrasos en la restauracion de las paginas que siguen caidas.

hoax: estafa, engaño

vamos a ver, no podeis usar el castellano, o el catalan? Existiendo la traduccion al termino citado, por que usar el ingles. por que suena mas guay, por que suena como un termino de internet, mas tecnico?

Joder, no hagais el ridiculo de esa manera, por favor, no esta el tema como para encima ir contribuyendo a la anglificacion de las lenguas, hostia puta.

Al que le guste mas el ingles, pues que escriba TODO en ingles.
remember when....

Comunicat de premsa de indymedia 14Oct

14 October 2004

On Wednesday, 14 October 2004, the Indymedia hardware was returned in the same way as they were taken: without any information given on who took them why, and on whose orders.

A employer from Rackspace informed Indymedia that the discs were returned: "I was just told that the court order is being complied with [...]. I will pass along anymore information that becomes available and that I am allowed to." Indymedia is now trying to determine in what way the hardware and data has been tampered with. Rackspace apparently is still under a gag order.

Even as the hardware is returned, several important questions remain open: "Who took the hardware? What does the court order entail? What is Indymedia accused of? Is it legal to take down websites in such a manner?" Indymedia is demanding answers on these questions, a copy of the court order and a full prosecution of those responsible for any violation of domestic or international laws.

Numerous organisations have expressed their solidarity with Indymedia. [quotes to be included]

Indymedia is now calling for more supporters to sign a solidarity declaration at [] to put the necessary global pressure behind their demands, to denounce the seizure of the Indymedia servers as an unaccetable and unprecedented attack on press freedom, free speech and privacy; to condem this action as a violation of communicaiton rights, and to express concern over the growing use of internation co-operation frameworks by governements and law enforcement agencies to obscure clear legal process, underminse civil liberties, and erode communication rights.

Recull de signatures en protesta per el segrest dels servidors

in Support of the Indymedia Network
and Against the Seizure of its Servers
Verified Signatures: 0     PETITION ENDS: 31-Oct-04

Indymedia is a global alternative media network that provides challenging, independent reporting, particularly of political and social justice issues, based on the principle of an open publishing newswire where any member of the public can publish their own texts, photos, audio, and video.

On 7 October, 2004, two Indymedia servers were seized from the US-owned, London-based web hosting company Rackspace, at the request of the US Department of Justice, apparently in collaboration with Italian and Swiss authorities.

The seizure of the servers in London shut down an Indymedia radio station and around 20 different Indymedia websites including those serving Ambazonia, Uruguay, Andorra, Poland, Western Massachusetts, Nice, Nantes, Lilles, Marseille, Euskal Herria (Basque Country), Liege, East and West Vlaanderen, Antwerpen, Belgrade, Portugal, Prague, Galiza, Italy, Brazil, UK, and parts of Germany Indymedia.

Although the servers were returned on October 13, the particular legal framework under which the seizures took place is unknown. One week after the seizures there is still an almost total information blackout from the authorities in the UK, US, Switzerland and Italy. Indymedia still has no confirmation of who ordered the seizures, who took the servers in London, why the seizures took place, or whether it will happen again.

In response, people all over the world have endorsed the following Declaration:

We, the Undersigned,

* Denounce the seizure of the Indymedia servers as an unacceptable and unprecedented attack on press freedom, free speech, and privacy;

* Condemn this action as a violation of communication rights, conducted with flagrant disregard for domestic and international law;

* Express concern over the growing use of international co-operation frameworks by governments and law enforcement agencies to obscure clear legal process, undermine civil liberties, and erode communication rights.

Against the seizure of the Indymedia servers and the attempt to impose silence, we Demand:

* A full, independent investigation into the circumstances and legality of the seizure of the Indymedia servers and the closure of Indymedia websites;

* A copy of the subpoena;

* Disclosure of the names of the organizations and individuals involved in the seizure;

* A report on which organizations held the drives while they were not at Rackspace, and what operations were performed on them;

* A list of the organizations which have been given access to information obtained through the seizure;

* An acknowledgement that Indymedia is a not a 'terrorist organization,' and that anti-terrorism laws cannot be legally applied to journalism;

* A re-affirmation of the rule of law and the value of a free press.


The Rt Hon David Blunkett, MP;

US Attorney General John Ashcroft;

The Director of the FBI;

The US Department of State;

appropriate officials in the government of Italy;

appropriate officials in the government of Switzerland.
